a lovely little break!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Well it has been so busy that I thought I needed a quick break with my gorgeous daughter before she went back to school (her last year) next week so we drove the 3 hours to the coast and stayed at Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast... Just beautiful, early morning walks, swimming, shopping, eating and I also had a chance to visit a dear shop that I supply my charms to called South Peregian Trading Co. at Peregian Beach... Vicki sells so many gorgeous things from bikinis made from vintage fabric, clothing, cards and 80 percent of her stock are made by local artists....She also runs french classes (as you can see by the eiffel tower in the photo) and even knitting classes at different times throughout the year...Vicki will be starting her own blog really soon so watch out for that. She was an absolute treasure and delight to meet ....
